Re: Coming soon to Virgin TV (2012) Vol. 1
Sky Atlantic HD, Sky Sports HD 3,4 and Sky Sports F1 HD are all exclusive to Sky and if you really want them you really should subscribe to Sky as they are always going to have that edge over VM and most VM subscribers accept and understand this. Sky will always want a level of exclusivity to keep a competitive advantage.
Get a feeling VM will do a deal for Sky Atlantic SD very soon but as regards the rest there is very little which has any significant viewing figures and are of any interest.
Perhaps ITV2,3,4, HD, Bio HD, Universal HD, CBS Drama are of interest to me, the rest are irrelevant.
We know talks are ongoing on ITV 2,3,4 HD and much more relevant now with the increasing use of these channels for sport.
So as I see it, if VM do a deal on Sky Atlantic SD and ITV 2,3,4 HD there really is not much else of any significance.
We all have our own preferences no doubt and others would like other channels I am sure but this is really getting down to the specialist interest area.
